Packing for your flying safari in Uganda– The Pearl of Africa: Flying Safaris mean saving time over a road trip but it also means  what you carry on a plane is less than you would in a vehicle – the luggage weight limit on flying safaris is 15 kilograms. Packing only the essentials is the key- only the things that you will need for the activity or activities you will be doing such as Gorilla and Chimpanzee Trekking, Hiking, Volcano Climbing

The suitcase of Choice is a Duffle Bag – Aerolink or Fly-Uganda recommend them due to easier storage on the flight.  On scheduled Safari is space is available extra luggage may be allowed at 6 USD a Kilogram.

Packing for your flying safari in Uganda – keep it to the essentials that you ned related to your activities that you will be doing on your Flying Safari in Uganda.


Packing for your flying safari in Uganda – Start out with the right soft-bag, duffle-bag – sturdy, rugged, keep away  from blue or black bags – they show the African dust rather quickly – on a flying safari you should not use a hard suitcase with wheels – a sturdy, quality duffle-bag is just right since it will be squished and squashed into the plane hold- take your sensitive equipment like cameras on board to your seat.

Since it is best to keep it light in the suitcase, wear the heaviest of clothing including light-weight boots,  (especially if you are gorilla tracking volcano climbing), rain-jacket, hat.

Flying safaris are about comfort and speed of travel but take a bit more planning as to what to bring along on the flight.  Extra luggage can be stored by Kabiza Wilderness Safaris or it will be brought along in the vehicle in most cases and you will be met with it at arrival.  On some flying safaris that will not be possible.

Enjoy your time in the Pearl of Africa…
